Limbe-based Elite Two club Victoria United have parted ways with one of their players Idriss Youssouf for failing to protect the image of the club.
The goalkeeper is accused of making claims about alleged involvement of the outfit in match-fixing.
He is said to have sent a voice message to the WhatsApp group of his former club Unisport of Haut Nkam, making the allegations considered unfounded.
This was after the match between Victoria United and Unisport on Sunday, which got interrupted by fans who protested against the referee’s decision to give a penalty to OPOPO.
Youssouf’s claims have been refuted by Victoria United who accuse him of unprofessional behaviour.
“He violated article 5(6) of his professional contract which states that ‘safeguard the reputation of the club and its members and respect duty of confidentiality in abstaining from material and morally prejudicial statements aimed at the clubs’” the President General of Victoria United Nkwain Valentine wrote.
In his communique, he indicated that while being a worker with Victoria United football club, the player was still attached to his former employee Unisport of Haut Nkam through their WhatsApp group thereby transmitting sensitive information to their direct opponent.
Victoria United have said they will forward the case through the federation to the litigation commission to call Youssouf for questioning.
